Interests: crystal growth; quantum wells/wires/dots; numerical modeling; optical and structural characterization; optoelectronic and photovoltaic devices
Nanowires and quantum dots are emerging as building blocks for the bottom–up assembly of nano-devices and functional systems, holding promise for a variety of application fields including chemical and biological sensors, ﬁeld effect transistors, light-emitting diodes, photovoltaic cells, and photodetectors. The continuous progress in the improvement of nanowires and quantum dots properties as well as the development of novel nanostructures has paved the way to significant achievements in electronic and optoelectronic device performance.
This volume intends to cover the main fundamental and technological achievements related to the preparation methods and techniques, as well as the optical, electrical, and structural properties of materials and devices based on nanowires and quantum dots. Numerical modelling of the fundamental properties of the nanowires and quantum dots as well as the modelling and simulation of nanoelectronic and optoelectronic devices based on these nanostructures are particularly welcome.
This Special Issue of Crystals focuses on these innovative topics by inviting original contributions as well as topical reviews dealing with the fabrication, characterization, and modelling of materials and devices based on crystalline nanowires and quantum dots for IoT applications.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Crystals is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
